I got the extension to work by exiting and restarting LibreOffice after installing the extension. I ran some tests on educational material that has Flesch-Kincaid scores of grades 2.9 to 3.9 I They came up in the 20-25 range on the Lix scale as measured by the Linguist tool.

Here is an article on how Lix works: http://www.readabilityformulas.com/th... Flesch reability: http://www.readabilityformulas.com/fl...

The formulas are not terribly difficult. MS Word and many other commercial word processors already have this functionality built-in and it works well. I would like to transition to LibreOffice for my educational material development needs, bu lack of a readability statistics tool makes this an impossibility.

Has anyone been able to get this extension working on LO 5? I installed it using the Extension Manager. However, configuring the extension to add its extra menu item of features is not very intuitive. I am not sure if I should suspect a bug as the extension has not been maintained in over a year. Readability statistics are critical for educators evaluating educational materials.

I am very surprised that anyone would consider readability statistics irrelevant and outdated! Educators in the United States and probably many other nations use readability statistics such as the Flesisch-Kinkaid, Lix, and others to determine whether their writing meets State and national readability standards for educational materials. Not having a readability statistics tool in LibreOffice makes it unusable for many educational uses.

2014-06-17 05:49:43 +0200 asked a question Is there any effort to allow a fully animated presentation to be output as HTML5 that will preserve audio and animations? This would be useful for e-learning design.

Typically, I have been using commercial programs, such as Articulate or Captivate to take a fully animated powerpoint presentation with audio and port it to HTML5 for use in LMS systems. Moodle is a very popular open source LMS for use in presenting e-learning courses.

I think coming up with a way to create a presentation with interaction for e-learning within Impress that can then be converted by Impress to a set of HTML5 pages would be a real coup and allow e-learning designers worldwide to create material that runs on tablets, phones, and computer screens.

2014-01-07 01:00:57 +0200 asked a question Are there any plans to enhance Impress html5 output to include transitions and audio?

Currently, exporting to html provides static jpg of each slide in a generic page. I can probably manually add code like:

 <audio controls>
  <source src="audiofile.wav">
  <source src="audiofile.ogg">
  <source src="audiofile.mp3"?
</audio>

to each page that Impress outputs in html5. It would be nice to have an automated option. With more browsers supporting the html5 canvas tools, it would make for a fun project for the Impress development team. I produce training materials and currently must use captivate as Impress doesn't produce the kind of formats I am looking for.

Here is an example from my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Luc4Lv5hUeQ

Any ideas as to how I can accomplish this in Impress?
